Michael Eric Dyson on ‘Our Unfinished Conversation About Race’


A new book by Michael Eric Dyson takes a look at an historic meeting between U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy and a small group of famous black artists – and how that pivotal conversation changed Kennedy’s view on race in America. 

The book is called: “What Truth Sounds Like: Robert F. Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America.”

Dyson joins us in conversation. He is a Georgetown University sociology professor, the author of 20 books, a New York Times contributing opinion writer and a Baptist minister. He is also a frequent political analyst on cable TV news networks.
